Lexmark Interact S605 - Wireless All-in-One

Lexmark Interact S605 review

 

Unfortunately, that embellishment doesn't fully compensate for the Lexmark Interact S605's pricey inks and other shortcomings. Overall, the HP Officejet 6500 Wireless is a better deal in the same price range.

The Lexmark Interact S605 has some nice features that could tempt someone buying for a small or home office. Unfortunately, its pricey inks make it unsuitable for all but the lightest-volume situations.

Lexmark Interact S605 review

 

The Interact S605 is a great example of the improvements Lexmark has made to its MFPs.

This remarkably versatile printer has great print quality and a big 4.3in touchscreen, but it's let down by high print costs.

Lexmark Interact S605 review

 

Touch-screen controls and useful on-screen feedback make the Interact S605 easy to use

Easy to use once you get started; excellent text quality for office documents; double-sided printing

Expensive; moderate printing speed

Printing costs are about average at 4p per page for black-and-white printing, and 10p for colour pages, when using Lexmark’s high-yield cartridges. However, the £200 price tag seems a little steep given its overall performance and quality. It certainly...

Lexmark Interact S605

 

The Lexmark Interact S605 lets you print from multiple computers over a wireless connection at speeds of up to 33 pages per minute. A 4.3-inch touchscreen, memory card slot and Pictbridge lets you view and print photos straight from your digital...

Lexmark - Interact S605

 

As far as first impressions go, Lexmark's Interact S605 doesn't disappoint. Gracing the front of the chassis is an extra-large, colour touch-screen display. We've seen touch-screens on printers before, but nothing quite like the Interact 605's ...

With its good design, fast print speeds and enticing touch-screen display, it's hard not to be impressed by the Interact S605. However, it struggles to produce high-quality photo prints, which is disappointing considering the price. And although the...

Lexmark Interact S605

 

It's not often a printer maker comes up with a genuinely new idea, and you could say this one is just lateral thinking, but Lexmark has incorporated a touchscreen control panel into three of its latest all-in-ones and has opened up what is effectively...

The Interact S605 is a better inkjet printer than the previous generation of Lexmark machines. Whether the touchscreen and the SmartSolutions project proves to be a success depends on whether people see it as a gimmick or whether the range of apps...

Lexmark Interact S605 inkjet multifunction

 

An inkjet multifunction printer with Lexmark's SmartSolutions widgets

802.11n Wi-Fi, touch-sensitive control panel, SmartSolutions Web-enabled widgets, prints documents from USB flash drives

Expensive consumables, no automatic document feeder, poor colour print quality

The Lexmark Interact S605 provides plenty of high-tech features like a touch-sensitive control panel, 802.11n Wi-Fi and Web-enabled widgets. However, expensive consumables and poor colour print quality dampen this printer’s appeal.

Lexmark Interact S605

 

The Lexmark Interact S605 color inkjet multifunction printer avoids being just another $200 (as of May 22, 2010) printer/scanner/copier by including a 4.3-inch color LCD touchscreen for its control panel (think iPod Touch or iPhone). Unfortunately,...

Automatic duplexing ; Touchscreen controls

Washed-out copies ; Pricey inks

This machine has a few nice features, but its expensive inks make it a dicey deal for small or home offices.

Lexmark Interact S605 review

 

Even if we're not fully convinced that touch screens belong on printers, the Lexmark Interact S605 is the most convincing printer we've tested to include a functional, easy-to-use interactive LCD. Home users and small businesses will also appreciate...

Rapid print output; easy wireless setup; user-friendly touch-screen LCD with convenient "SmartSolution" shortcuts; includes autoduplexer.

Photo quality needs improvement.

The Lexmark Interact S605 multifunction device prints, scans, copies, and connects wirelessly with a streamlined user experience facilitated by an easy-to-use touch screen and customizable widgets called "SmartSolutions." Built for small businesses and...
